Now, If the river was whiskey
And I was a divin' duck
Now, If the river was whiskey
I was a divin' duck
I would dive underwater
Never would come up

Don't never take
A married woman to be your friend
Don't never take
Married woman to be your friend
She will get all your money
Give it to her other man

Now, married woman
Always been my crave
Now, married woman
Always been my crave
Now, married woman
Car' me to my grave

Now, ain't it hard
To love someone as they?
Now, ain't it hard
To love someone as they?
You can't get her when you want her
Have to use her when you fit

Now, the sun gon' shine
In my back do' someday
Now, the sun gonna shine
In my back do' someday
Now, the wind gonna rise
Gonna blow my blues away

Now, went to the railroad
Looked up at the sun
Now, went to the railroad
Looked up at the sun
If the train don't hurry
Gonna be some walkin' done.
